"Karoshi" is a Japanese word and means "death by overwork". In this game many things are not what you'd expect and the goal of each level is counter-intuitive: you need to die.

Each stage presents a new challenge. There are several objects you can use to solve puzzles, and in later levels the game will even break it's own rules to surprise you.

50 clever levels and a boss fight at the end. We hope you have fun (killing yourself)!

If you have played the Game Maker version, YES this is an official Flash version!



Rated 4 / 5 stars

More challenging than other suicide games

Thankfully, it was still funny, and, when you finally get to die at the end of each level, it's a good dark joke.

The intro animation was a little poor though, with an out-of-sync Newgrounds intro animation and the short video that followed showed bad drawing and simplistic tweening - the latter was OK in the actual game. But on the whole, this game can't fail on the basis of an intro animation.
